Final Draft Done! (This time around.)

I finished my redline edits translated to novel edits finally. It took me a full week and added 10,000 much needed words to the novel. I filled in a lot of holes in the descriptions of the world, caught one continuity error and added in a new level of magic description throughout the novel.

I've never done redline edits to a novel before and it was surprisingly productive and eye opening. It also took longer to go from the complete redline edits to the complete novel edits than I thought it would. Looks like I can professionally edit (on average) 50 manuscript pages a day and keep both my voice and my sanity.

Next up, outline in novel two of the Catalyst cycle.
